The legacy of the first Symposium – 2017

120 young people, policymakers, donors, researchers, academics and representatives of UN, NGOs and CSOs gathered on 21 November 2017 in Amman, Jordan, with the purpose of sharing evidence and recommendations around key priorities for young people living in the MENA region.

With over one-third of the participants being adolescents and youth researchers, advocates, activists and reporters, the symposium gave an opportunity to today’s generation to engage and be heard. As young people heartily expressed throughout their participation, now is the time for action.
